Appositive
  • a noun that is placed NEXT to another noun to
    identify it or add information about it.
  • Example Chucks friend, John, picks his nose.

Appositive Phrase
  • A group of words that includes an appositive and
    other words that modify the appositive.
  • Example John, the gross kid in school, picks his
    nose everyday.
  • The words gross and in school modify the
    appositive kid. The phrase the gross kid in
    school is an appositive phrase. It identifies the
    noun John.

Commas and Appositive Phrases
  • Commas are needed if the information the
    appositive adds is NOT needed.
  • Example Johns father, Mr. Choose, wishes he
    would stop.
  • Commas are needed if the information the
    appositive adds is a phrase.
  • Example Mr. Choose, Johns caring father, wishes
    he would stop.

Commas Continued
  • Commas are not needed when the information is
    needed. Or, often, not comma is needed if it is a
    short name.
  • Example Johns friend Chuck thinks his habit is
    gross.
  • John has lots of friends so it's NEEDED in this
    sentence to identify which one.
